The bar, restaurant and beer garden have undergone refurbishment. Our restaurant has beautiful panoramic views over Tarbert Harbour and our menu is based on fresh, local, seasonal produce. We love meeting new people, so come in and say hi :) We have a public bar, lounge, beer garden and the Harbour View restaurant (upstairs). There are 6 rooms in the hotel at the moment and prices start at £35ppn, pn inc. Breakfast.

In for a beer and decided to have Haddock Pakora before ordering a main. After a fairly long wait, was asked if Haggis Pakora would do! Said no, haddock pakora as ordered, please.
Pakora (3 small pieces for £6.50) duly arrived together with a large black hair, a slice of already used lemon and extremely limp salad. Salad being open to interpretation.
First piece of pakora fine. Second and third pieces were haggis, not haddock.
Shocking. Give it a miss.

Great service, reasonable prices and good pub style food Kids menu was appreciated by our 8 year old, still quite a big serving.

Friendly service and good quality food, with variety of choices on the menu. A window seat on a sunny night certainly adds to the enjoyment.

Big portions, delicious food, fish that tastes amazingly fresh. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Great selection of Scottish whiskies. Right on the harbour in Tarbert.

Booked my birthday dinner in the Frigate. Got a fabulous window seat in what is a beautiful restaurant. Service was great. The food was fantastic. I can honestly say it’s the best dinning experience I’ve had in a while. Well worth a visit.
